Great egret

This is another picture of a wild bird taken in Tuxtla Zoo, the Great Egret (Ardea albus). I include it mainly as a comparative reference with the cattle egret, as the white herons can be confusing. I have yet to see the white morph of the great blue heron (Ardea herodias)  although they are apparently found in Chiapas and can be easily mistaken for the Great Egret.
